THE COMPONENTS, RECOMMENDED BY ONE ENGINES, FOR "HORSEPOWER-SAVING" KART TRANSMISSIONS
In addition to working directly on engine components, drivers and technicians often work on the elements of the transmission to improve the performance of their karts. In fact, the sprocket, gear wheel and chain are the mechanical parts that transmit drive from the engine to the wheels, thus allowing the movement of a kart (to go into more detail, read "Technique | The transmission of karts
"). In addition to merely working on the transmission ratio (determined on the basis of various parameters: characteristics of the circuit, type of tyres, driving style of the driver, atmospheric conditions, etc.), one of the objectives of technicians and drivers is to reduce the dispersion of energy produced by the engine that the transmission, by its nature, entails. And precisely with this objective in mind, One Engines (one of the most titled engine tuners, in recent years, at international level) recommends the use of particular components, capable of making the transmission of single-speed karts more efficient. Here's what they are.
